    Thanks for the information - sans attitude. Does the Big Ten network qualify as a "national network?"

          Outside the Big Ten markets (where it is on most standard cable packages), I believe it is on the same sports tier as NBC Sports and a tier lower (cheaper to obtain) than CBS Sports. So I would say yes.

            On DirecTV, the B1G is on starting with the Choice Package. NBC Sports and CBS Sports are on starting with the Choice Xtra Package ($5 more than Choice, 60+ more channels). Choice Xtra is by far the most popular package for DirecTV consumers (according to DirecTV)...but I highly doubt that is because of NBC Sports and CBS Sports.

              The NCHC contract with CBS Sports Network doesn't call for NO games to be televised on regional cable networks like ROOTSPORTS or whatever they call the FSSN now. It only means the particular game CBS Sports shows can't also be shown concurrently by a team's "home" network. When CBS is showing a Miami/UNO game, ROOTS can still show a DU game. CBS will be the exclusive national TV outlet.

Ultimately though, worst case scenario, you are replacing 22-26 UND and DU games with 20 NCHC games. The plethora of Tuesday and Thursday B1G games will more than make up for losing out on 2-6 UND and DU games for the vast majority of college hockey fans. For those of us that are truly affected, we can still hook up our computers to our TVs.

                  No, it does say that they cannot broadcast any conference games nationally, whether CBS Sports is airing the game or not. I verified this with UND's SID via Twitter when the deal was made.

                    That isn't precisely correct. According to the Chris Peters blog at The United States of Hockey:

                    If these schools signed a deal giving away the right to televise ANY game unless CBS chooses it to be one of the handful they show, they would be giving away the entire store. While $$$ isn't much of an issue in these college hockey deals, the exposure certainly means something to each school. North Dakota would never agree to disappear entirely from the statewide airwaves they occupy for every single one of their home games in exchange for getting 3 or 4 games a year on a network that has far less presence in their market. They only will be precluded from showing the games that CBS shows. Just like when FOX shows the Cubs on Saturday, Comcast or WGN can't show it.

                    The league collectively would not be giving up the rights to show, literally, 100s of games in exchange for 20. Not unless there was a whole lot of money coming there way.

                      Chris's post says what I have been saying.

                      They can still show conference games regionally. Just not nationally. I think you need to go back and re-read the discussion.

                      For instance, I get every televised UND game here in Milwaukee right now. I won't next year. Just the ones on CBS Sports. That's what we're talking about. Fans outside of home regional markets.

                            Sounds like a sufficient summary of all your posts.


                            This is a great deal for UMD. This is the first time they will have a tv deal to broadcast their games outside of Northern Minnesota. Currently only home games are shown by local My9 in Duluth. Unless I pay for online coverage I cannot watch the games when I miss home games. It will be nice to know that I can watch more UMD games.

                                I'm assuming that is only during football season?
